Eight members were present for the September meeting. Several councillors had attended separate meetings with officers from the district council and landlords Luminus about the Grand Cinema site planning application. The officers from the district shared the same views as the town council regarding the design, but were not as sympathetic regarding loss of the car parking in New Road. They believe the results of the car parking review being undertaken at the moment would alleviate the problems currently experienced with car parking in Ramsey. Luminus said it was working on four or five different versions of the plans to address the issues that have been raised. * The recommendation that the ends of the pipes be cut off and one-way flaps fitted to the pipes in the bank, in an effort to stop the rats at the pond, was approved. * A "no golf" sign is to be displayed in the King George playing field near the boundary fence next to the cricket club. * The Tesco transport assessment figures were received, enabling the district council to consider the planning application. The district is to carry out an audit of all signage in Ramsey. A letter from the county council's west highways division about cars mounting the footpath in the High Street was referred to the next meeting of the highways working party. The next meeting of the council will be on Thursday, October 12, at 7pm, when there will be an opportunity for members of the public to speak. CONTACT: Lorraine Russell, town clerk, on 01487 814957.
